      Abstract: AbstractComparative measurements between frequency modulation Kelvin probe force microscopy (FM-KPFM) using low frequency bias voltage and heterodyne FM-KPFM using high frequency bias voltage were performed on the surface potential measurement. A silicon substrate patterned with p- and n-type impurities was used as a quantitative sample. The multi-pass scanning method in the measurements of FM-KPFM and heterodyne FM-KPFM was used to eliminate the effect of the tip–sample distance dependence. The measured surface potentials become lower in the order of the p-type region, n-type region and n+-type region by both FM-KPFM and heterodyne FM-KPFM, which are in good agreement with the order of the work functions of the pn-patterned Si sample. We observed the difference in the surface potentials due to the surface band bending measured by FM-KPFM and heterodyne FM-KPFM. The difference is due to the fact that the charge transfer between the surface and bulk levels may or may not respond to AC bias voltage.

      Abstract: AbstractDifferential phase contrast (DPC) scanning transmission electron microscopy can directly visualize electromagnetic fields inside a specimen. However, their image contrast is not only sensitive to the electromagnetic fields in the sample, but also the changes in diffraction conditions such as sample bends or thickness changes. These additional contrasts are called diffraction contrasts, and sometimes make it difficult to extract pure electromagnetic field information from the experimental DPC images. In this study, we developed a beam scan system that can acquire many DPC images from the same sample region with arbitrarily varying incident beam tilt angles to the sample. Then, these images are precisely averaged to form tilt-scan averaged DPC images. It is shown that the diffraction contrast can be effectively reduced in the tilt-scan averaged DPC images.

  • Toward complex observation in electron microscopy using two-dimensional
           electron detector coupled with phase plate STEM

      Abstract: AbstractA two-dimensional (2D) detector was used to construct phase plate STEM (P-STEM) images. Phase-contrast can be enhanced by the electron intensity inside the hole region of a thin film phase plate. The electron intensity outside the hole region also provides a dark image contrast, which is inconsistent with the weak phase object approximation. We consider that both images have scattering effects that provide a dark contrast. Therefore, scattering contrast was derived by summing these two images, and scattering effects were subtracted from each image to display negative and positive phase contrast. The resultant images are consistent with the weak phase object approximation. These results propose separating scattering (electron amplitude) and phase-contrast (electron phase) using P-STEM, along with a two-dimensional electron detector.

           GLUT1 molecules in vesicles in brain endothelial cells—correlative light
           and electron microscopy in depth

      Abstract: AbstractPrecise immunolocalization of molecules in relation to ultrastructural features is challenging, especially when the target is small and not frequent enough to be included in tiny ultrathin sections randomly selected for electron microscopy (EM). Glucose transporter 1 (GLUT1) is in charge of transporting glucose across brain capillary endothelial cells (BCECs). Paraformaldehyde-fixed floating sections (50 μm thick) of mouse brain were immunolabeled with anti-GLUT1 antibody and visualized with fluoronanogold. Fluorescent images encompassing the entire hemisphere were tiled to enable selection of GLUT1-positive BCECs suitable for subsequent EM and landmark placement with laser microdissection to guide trimming. Sections were then fixed with glutaraldehyde, gold enhanced to intensify the labeling and fixed with osmium tetroxide to facilitate ultrastructural recognition. Even though a region that contained target BCECs was successfully trimmed in the resin block, it was only after observation of serial ultrathin sections that GLUT1 signals in coated vesicles on the same cross section corresponding to the cross section preidentified by confocal laser microscope. This is the first ultrastructural demonstration of GLUT1 molecules in coated vesicles, which may well explain its functional relevance to transport glucose across BCECs. Successful ultrastructural localization of molecules in relation to well-preserved target structure in native tissue samples, as achieved in this study, will pave the way to understand the functional relevance of molecules and their relation to ultrastructural details.

      Abstract: AbstractEpifluorescence microscopy was used to unveil the geometry and relative spatial orientation of an arrangement of crystal defects, consisting of a quadruple node of triple junctions of grain boundaries, in a Eu2+-doped solid solution of K+, Rb+, Cl− and Br−. The doping ion was utilized as a fluorochrome. Microscopy images of different optical cross-sections of the arrangement of crystal defects under study were recorded and used to build an electronic three-dimensional reconstruction of this arrangement. The geometry is that of an irregular tristetrahedron, centred at the quadruple node, so that the tristetrahedron legs, deviating from the lattice <111>-zone axis directions, lie along the triple junctions, whereas the tristetrahedron faces collapse onto the grain boundaries. The deviation angles as well as the angles defined by different triple junction pairs and different grain boundary pairs were measured. The orientational deviation is larger than that in a KI single crystal but lower than that in a solid solution of K+, Cl− and Br−, meaning that the structural equilibrium depends on the matrix lattice structural character. Uncompensated local nanostrains, due to the ion substitution, are associated with the observed decrement in structural stability, in relation to the KI case, whereas compensated local nanostrains, provoked by the simultaneous substitution of cations and anions, are argued to be responsible for the observed increment in structural stability, in relation with the K(Cl, Br) case. The optical characterization of the fluorochrome, the recording and processing of the microscopy images, the building of the electronic 3D reconstruction, the angular measure methodology and the geometrical modelling are all carefully described.

      Abstract: AbstractHuntingtin-associated protein 1 (HAP1) is abundantly expressed in the neurons of the central nervous system and forms unique intracytoplasmic inclusions of unknown function called ‘stigmoid bodies’ (STBs). Transmission electron microscopy has revealed that the STBs are aggregates of granules containing cavities with a diameter of 0.5–3 µm. Small STBs fuse to form larger STBs, the size of which is said to vary depending on the developmental growth stage and brain region. Light microscopy can only reveal that these STBs have similar circular shapes due to its limited resolution. Therefore, light microscopy is only fit for the study of the STB distribution and quantitative changes. We, herein, suggest the adoption of correlative light and electron microscopy, which combines confocal laser scanning microscopy and scanning electron microscopy as the method allowing us to identify the huntingtin-associated protein 1–positive STBs in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) sections. This approach allows us to study the three-dimensional morphology of immunolabeled objects in histopathological specimens. The STBs in FFPE sections of murine hypothalami reflected the transmission electron microscopic images of Epon-embedded STBs, although we were not able to observe any organelle covering the STBs of the FFPE sections. Furthermore, we were able to reconstruct the three-dimensional structure of the STB, and we identified it to be of spherical form, covered with mitochondria and rough endoplasmic reticulum, and bearing a cluster of cavities in the centre. In the future, we might gain new insights by comparing the three-dimensional structure of the STB between different neurons and under a variety of conditions.

      Pages: 93 - 97
      Abstract: AbstractWe have developed an observation and measurement method for spatial electromagnetic fields by using scanning electron/ion microscopes, combined with electron holography reconstruction technique. A cross-grating was installed below the specimen, and the specimens were observed under the infocus condition, and the grating was simultaneously observed under the defocus condition. Electromagnetic fields around the specimen were estimated from grating-image distortions. This method is effective for low and middle magnification and resolution ranges; furthermore, this method can in principle be realizable in any electron/ion beam instruments because it is based on the Lorentz force model for charged particle beams.

  • Correlative light and electron microscopy of poly(ʟ-lactic acid)
           spherulites for fast morphological measurements using a convolutional
           neural network

      Abstract: AbstractPolarized optical microscopy (POM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) are widely used for imaging polymer spherulite structures. TEM provides nanometer resolution to image small spherulites of sub-micrometer in diameter, while POM is more suitable for observing large spherulites. However, high-resolution images with a large field of view are challenging to achieve due to the deformations of ultrathin sectioned samples used for TEM observations. In this study, we demonstrated that correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM) combining POM and TEM could effectively characterize the spherulite structures in a wide range from nanometer to several hundred micrometers that neither TEM nor POM alone could cover. Furthermore, the deformations of the TEM ultrathin sections were corrected by referencing to the POM images at the same position of the sample, and large-area TEM images without deformations were successfully produced. The spherulite structures of poly(ʟ-lactic acid) were successfully analyzed using CLEM and TEM in a wide range of spatial scales at the same field of view. The large-area TEM image (250 µm × 250 µm), consisting of 702 TEM images stitched together, was subjected to machine learning to extract the essential structural information of spherulites. Analysis using the convolutional neural network, a well-known algorithm You Only Look Once (YOLO), demonstrated that it was practical to accurately obtain the diameter distribution and the space-filling factor (relative crystallinity) of the spherulites. This study presents a new approach for acquiring high-resolution images with a large field of view and processing the images at a fast speed.
